The Joys of Sadness

Saturday October 21, 2006 - 07:48pm (IST)

A heart not bared,
For he not dared.

For all he cared,
A hope not shared.

Betwixt hope and fear,
He hoped for his vision to clear.

He then saw the Princess dear,
So far, yet so near.

Faltering words, his thoughts askew,
He decided , a man anew.

He told her , and the next moment he knew,
The sad twinkle in his eyes was not morning dew.

A moment captured,
He enraptured.

With trepidation he ventured,
Pearls and Crystals, albeit a heart shattered.

The hope still lives,
Despite the many webs she weaves.

With memories of the sparkle of her mirth,
He hoped for a miracle.......or a rebirth.
